eiconctrl - configure Eicon active ISDN card
eiconctrl [-d Driver-Id] action options ...
is used to setup the Eicon ISDN
and for downloading the firmware into the ISDN
The use of eiconctrl
makes sense, if you are using an active Eicon ISDN
- -d Driver-Id
- selects the S0/S2M interface named by Driver-Id.
Driver-Ids are defined during driver initialisation. See
README.eicon for a description of the syntax to be used for
modularised and monolithic driver versions. This option must be
used to identify the S0/S2M interface if more than one S0/S2M interface is
existent. If a single card is used, it may be omitted. If using more than
one ISA-Bus-type card, support for the other cards is enabled with the
add action of eiconctrl. PCI-Bus-type cards will be automatically
added during driver initialisation. Ids may not start with
digits or small x, because these values are misinterpreted
as numeric parameters by insmod. For loading the module, always the
newest modutils package should be used to avoid problems during
The following actions
may be given to eiconctrl
- irq [interrupt]
- sets the irq number to use (only ISA). If the interrupt
value is omitted, the current setting will be printed.
- load protocol [options]
- Downloads the protocol- and dsp-code into the card and
Euro-ISDN E-DSS1 (default)
German ISDN Protocol
other protocols are also possible
For options see eiconctrl
without any parameters for ISA cards and
eiconctrl divaload -h
for PCI cards.
- manage [read|exec
- Starts Management-Interface.
- Retrieving XLOG entries of adapter. With option cont
given, it will be on a continuous cycle. Using a driver release 1.77 or
newer you can specify a trace-file for the xlog interpreter.
- isdnlog [on|off]
- Switch trace-information for isdnlog on/off.
- COMMON to all BRI-ISA
- When using BRI-PtP set -S1 -n -t0 options. Some (very rare)
switches require the -S2 here.The offset, set by the on-boards jumpers
needs an additional '0' (f.e. Cards jumper setup is 0xd800 - means a
membase of 0xd8000 ).
- S SX SXn SCOM
- when loading the card's module by insmod / modprobe, you
need to specify Membase, IRQ and ID. Only the SCOM is also
- When using PRI-PtP set -n -S2
- Loading this card as usual will automatically find and
autoload the remaining three cards. Don't forget to set the Membase, IRQ
and ID string using insmod or modprobe. Remember to "eiconctrl load
<card_n>" for all "four" cards manually with the
desired protocol. When setting the ID's last letter to an "a",
the remaining ID's will be continued with "b, c, d" ; Otherwise
the ID-string will add a "_2 _3 _4" to the cards
- COMMON to all BRI/PRI PCI
- All cards are auto detected and autoloaded w/o any
parameters at insmod/modprobe. Using more than one card in a system will
require the eiconctrl "-d" option to load the further cards.
(f.e eiconctrl -d eicon2) You can also use the -all option to get all
boards loaded at one time (divaload only). The ETSI protocol is default
and is not needed to be set as parm. Otherwise add the desired protocol to
specify. The protocolcodes are normally located at
- Loading this card will set the protocol to all "4
cards" same style. You cannot load different codes. This is not a
bug! The ID's are set while loading - automatically.
- When using PRI-PtP set -n -S2
Use option -x to set NT mode.
- eiconctrl load etsi
- loads and starts S0 type adapter with protocol E-DSS1.
- eiconctrl load etsi -t1 -s1 -n
- loads and starts S0 type adapter with protocol E-DSS1
- eiconctrl load etsi -s2 -n
- loads and starts S2M type adapter with protocol
